Food processing has a significant potential for expansion and socioeconomic influence around the world since it generates revenue by providing jobs for the rural poor and so relieves pressure on the agricultural sector. It also aids in the reduction of waste, the addition of value, the earning of foreign exchange, and the improvement of manufacturing competitiveness.
This industry represents an important link between the agricultural and industrial sectors of the economy. If we put enough emphasis on this, our concerns about food security and inflation will be considerably alleviated.
A good blend of general education and skill development would be included in the curriculum.
Various visiting guest teachers from the food processing and preservation industry, as well as the institute’s experienced faculty, will share their expertise, information, experience, and technology with the students.
